Ben Ferguson is not your typical half pipe rider. In a world where riders used to ride every type of terrain, the athletes today seem more specialized, especially the competition athletes.  But Ben only competes because he can, He's a snowboarder first, who has the talent in the pipe that generates exposure, sponsorship dollars and everything else that goes along with being an Olympic level rider.  The cool thing about Ben is he doesn’t care about any of that, he’s all about the riding, man.
